One Love Foundation, the nonprofit organization created in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Reynolds Love, today announced that noted researcher Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell has been named to the Foundation’s National Advisory Counsel.
Campbell is currently the Anna D. Wolf Chair and a Professor in the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing with a joint appointment in the Bloomberg School of Public Health. Since 1980, she has conducted advocacy, policy work and research in the area of Relationship Violence (RV) and health outcomes, including research on how to help women accurately assess their risk of homicide by an abuser.
In her role on the advisory counsel, Campbell will provide the organization with expert research and resources which will help the One Love Foundation become a national voice against RV. She will serve as a foundation spokesperson, as well as provide research and resources to enhance education programs the foundation will be working to implement throughout the United States.
“I am thrilled and honored to work with the One Love Foundation in their important vision for a world where young women and men understand that healthy, happy and loving relationships are never characterized by violence and abuse, where young women are not confused by acts of violence or abuse by partners who profess to love them, and where both young women and young men know that to be strong and to be loving and nonviolent are not contradictions.”
Campbell’s extensive charity, policy and global work includes serving on the Board of Directors for Futures Without Violence and the House of Ruth Battered Women’s Shelter. In addition, she co-chaired the steering committee for the World Health Organization Multi-Country Study on Violence Against Women and Health and was a member of the congressionally appointed US Department of Defense Task Force on Domestic Violence. Campbell’s expertise is frequently sought by national and international policy makers, including the White House, in exploring relationship violence and its effect on families and communities.
“We are honored to welcome Jackie Campbell to our national advisory counsel,” said Kim Ward, Chair of the One Love National Advisory Counsel. “Her expertise in this arena is priceless for the One Love Foundation. Jackie’s research and data on Relationship Violence will be a great foundation to our expanded mission and reach to a national level.”
